Insta Inner Circle

Semester long group project.


How can we reduce Instagram’s negative influence on young adults to help them combat addiction?
We needed to better understand: 

  1. Which specific feature within the Instagram application is the most “addicting” for users? 
  2. What do users currently dislike about the application?
  3. What do users currently value the most in the application?  

These questions helped guide our content analysis.
